Brazil has been a pioneer in developing biofuels as an economically viable alternative to fossil fuels since the introduction of flex-fuel (dual-fuel) vehicles in the country in 2003. Ethanol in the country is produced mainly from sugarcane, although maize ethanol has been gaining importance in recent years. Biodiesel, on the other hand, is derived from vegetable oils and animal fats, with soybean oil being the major raw material. Pure fossil fuels are not available to the final consumer due to the mandatory biofuel blend. The COVID-19 pandemic heavily impaired the operations of Brazil’s biofuel producers, which suffered from disruptions in the supply of raw inputs, lower price competitiveness of ethanol compared to conventional petrol and a decrease in domestic demand for petrol.
